Lessons

A minimum number of 3 participants is required to activate any of the courses in our standard program schedule (7 week course, 2 hours per week). If the required 3 participant minimum number is not reached, the course fee will not vary but the number of hours will change proportionately.

Cancellation

Enrollment can be cancelled up to 5 days before the starting date of the course without any penalty charges. A full refund will be mailed to students.

If the cancellation request occurs less than 5 days before the beginning of the course, students will receive a 50% refund.

Once the course has begun, no refunds will be made, either for irregular lesson attendance or for dropping the course entirely.

If the student is unable to attend the course due to force majeure reasons (grief, serious health conditions, etc.), the school will supply a voucher to be used within 12 months. The voucher may be transferred to another person at the complete discretion of the student.

In the case of a student wishing to join a course already in session, the school may consider offering a proportional fee reduction.

Absence and Make-up Classes

Thinking Italian allows one make-up class per session at no charge on a schedule compatible with a teacher's availability. If a student misses more than one class, these additional missed classes cannot be rescheduled or credited to another session. However, a student may request private lesson make-up classes at a discounted fee of $25/hr.

Photo and Video

The school reserves the right to occasionally take pictures or videos for promotional purposes only. If a student does not wish to participate in the advertising and informational material of the school, he must promptly inform the school before such pictures or videos are taken.
